serial console access to O2?

I can't seem to dial to a serial console on O2.

I tried a null modem and a straight through cable,
connected to serial port 1 on O2.

I did "setenv console d" in PROM, and unplugged
the keyboard.

I connect from another fbsd box with "cu -l /dev/cuau0"

After a few seconds I just get "link down",
no console prompt or anything else appearing.

Please advise

many thanks
